This year’s Kentucky Derby comes with a bit of a twist! It has just been announced that 2 new competitors have been entered into the race, and the horses are a little, well, different. Although this race has been dedicated to thoroughbreds over the last 143 years, this year a Mustang has been entered, along with, you’re never going to believe this… a UNICORN!!
These 2 contenders have been quickly making a name for themselves as they’ve moved up through the races with impeccable speeds. Who would have thought the day would come where a mustang would compete against a group of thoroughbreds, let alone a unicorn?
This mustang, whose name is Mustang Money, is smaller in size, but just as fast as the rest of the herd. Much like Hidalgo, this horse loves to run and will keep going! With a name like Mustang Money, you’d be a fool not to bet on him.
The second, and most rare competitor since the likes of the Zebra in Stripes, heralds from the magical world of Ponyland, and has been killing the competition! This unique unicorn’s name is Machine Gun Unicorn. Don’t let his small stature fool you. Machine Gun Unicorn is a hero in his home for slaying the zombie invaders. He came to the rescue when the ponies of Ponyland resorted to sharp axes and bloody bats, much like the ones resembling Lucille in that other zombie show, and anything else they could get their hands on. Needless to say, he’s tough, fast and won’t give up!
The addition of these unique characters is sure to grab everyone’s attention. There’s already controversy written all over this race. Will it be the best of the classically trained thoroughbreds to win, or will it be one of the new radical members? Either way, be sure to stay tuned to the race today to see history unfold!
